The Green Prince Is Eye Opening

I walked into The Green Prince blind to the documentary's overall plot and found myself completely enthralled in the true story that unfolded.
The Green Prince tells the story of unlikely friends Mosab Hassan Yousef and Gonen Ben Yitzhak, one the eldest son of a high-level Palestinian extremist and the other an Israeli Shin Bet secret agent. These two form an incredible bond in the face of a hateful adversity that I can't even begin to imagine. And through their many efforts, they almost made the world a much safer place to live. This is a compelling story told directly from the perspectives of the men who lived it.
Nadav Schirman has made an excellent film on only his third try. It's one of those stories you owe it to yourself to know more about.
